Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond Instructions



Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond improves the adherence of Junkyard Goddess Milk Paint and Junkyard Goddess Glitter Milk Paint on surfaces such as glass, enamel, metal, oil or latex paint, varnished, shellacked or polyurethaned surfaces, and many plastics.


The beauty of milk paint is that it's the most simple paint to use to achieve a time-worn, vintage look that replicates the beauty of a piece that's been around for years.  The natural, distressed finish with loss of paint (what we refer to as "chippy") is a natural result of milk paint due to the lack of synthetic additives such as polymers.

Sometimes a more uniform application is preferred (no chippiness to the paint and either no distressing or light distressing).  In this case, use Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond.  Magic Bond will improve the adherence of milk paint, especially on "slick" surfaces such as glass, enamel, metal, oil or latex paint, varnished, shellacked or polyurethaned surfaces, and many plastics.  If applying milk paint to raw, unfinished wood, however, Magic Bond isn't necessary, because the paint adheres well in this case.

Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond



  1. Thoroughly clean the surface to be painted. Glossy surfaces should be sanded slightly to improve performance.
  2. Combine two parts MIXED Junkyard Goddess Milk Paint or Junkyard Goddess Glitter Milk Paint with one part Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond. Mix well. 
  3. Apply one or more light, even coats to project.
  4. Allow two full hours between coats to dry. (Colder rooms may require longer dry time.)
  5. The final coat of paint does not require Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond. However, the painted surface will be even more durable if it is used on the final coat.  Experiment to discover the preferred look. 


  1. Because Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond is water soluble, clean up is simple. Only water is needed.


  1. Always store Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond at room temperature, with lid tightly closed. Do not allow to freeze.

*Junkyard Goddess Magic Bond is not recommended to use alone as a top coat or sealer.
